HEAL Initiative: HEAL Data2Action Modeling and Economic Resource Center (U24 Clinical Trial Optional)
National Institutes of Health
Funding Opportunity RFA-DA-22-049 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This FOA seeks applications for one Modeling and Economic Resource Center to support the HEAL D2A Innovation Projects. This center will provide expertise in a variety of simulation modeling and economic analyses and methods; utilize agent-based, predictive, geospatial or other simulation models to inform Innovation Project grantees about the potential public health impact of implementing different interventions, to support local implementation decisions; support the Innovation Projects in assessing costs and cost benefit associated with selected service delivery changes; develop costing tools that can be utilized by Innovation Grants to inform local decisions about the selection of interventions; and conduct original research applying state-of-the-art economic and simulation modeling expertise to understand and address the overdose crisis. This FOA runs in parallel with a set of companion FOAs supporting the other components of the HEAL D2A Program.
